    Outstanding pun, indeed, and exactly the way rice-and-sausage dish is pronounced in south Louisiana.

    A bit of a difficult one if you are an overseas English speaker and are not all that familiar with New Orleans & Creole country jargon. this puzzle was recently in one of our Sydney Australia dailies and although I solved all the individual words the phrase had me stumped until I saw the answer

    Yes, Peter. The Jumble is primarily American, in nature, and some of the answers may stump those not steeped in our culture. I’m sure if there were an Australian version of the Jumble there would be answers that many/most Americans wouldn’t get. My mother’s newspaper carries a comic strip called “Fred Basset”, and although it’s nicely drawn and cute, I just don’t see the humor in it. Vive la difference! — YUR
